The hot rumor is within a year or two Bert is going to be back into college coaching and that Chaney and Pittman will be back with him. Some are saying that Chaney is about to be demoted at Georgia and Pittman is not happy about it.

This from Mike Irwin on the 4th of January. Obviously Mike had a solid source and perhaps the reason for this move. Does Pittman return to Tennessee with Chaney? Will Chaney or Pittman sign a non-compete? Very interesting and good call Mike Irwin.

Bert left Pittman out to dry on several recruits, and he and Chaney didn't see eye to eye towards end. Not buying it. But I guess if they all enjoy being the Beefy Brothers, nothing can stop that bond  :puke:

Agreed..but I will say Chaney moves around allot...not good for any program's consistency. He's been at Tn., Ar., Pitt, Ga, and now Tn. again within the last 6-7 years. Something not right there, seems to either bolt or wear out his welcome very quickly.

Didn't Chaney and Pittman leaving Tn. coincide with the Dooley firing?
Bert couldn't keep hardly any of his staff intact and had the same problem at Wisconsin.
Who wouldn't leave Pitt for Georgia?

Chaney is a good OC.  This didn't surprise me a bit though.  Local media is spinning it as they didn't want to give him a raise and were outbid by Tenn.  Kirby wanted a change.  Chaney has been questioned and criticized going back into last season for game plans and in game play calling.  Not agreeing with all of it.  Just it has happened. 

UGa has been loaded with offensive talent.  Still will be even with losing Fields to transfer and a couple of others early to the draft. 

Bielema's biggest mistake was his oline recruiting and specifically how few HS olinemen he signed.  It was a philosophical difference with Pittman.  Pittman was right.  Can't see them working together again.  But some people change and admit their mistakes.

Chaney isn't perfect for sure but things have been going pretty good for Georgia - they are right there.
This feels like a knee jerk reaction by Georgia to the Bama loss in the SEC Championship game.
It's not like a successful LSU program that had an inept offense for too many years and really needed some changes.

Look at Clemson - lots of their success has come from keeping their staff intact.

Athens resident here.    UGa is all in.   They're PO'd about their performance in the Sugar Bowl and they fully intend to make college football a 3-team cartel.

If Auburn isn't any good next year, no one should be a bit surprised to see Alabama, Georgia, and Clemson all finish their regular seasons 12-0. 

As for Bielema reuniting with Pittman and Chaney, add me to the list of folks who can't see it.

Best way to describe Chaney may be serviceable (except in an Auburn elevator).  With superior talent in a stable environment he's alright. Your offense will be OK.  Is he an innovator, developer of QBs, or elite play caller?  Can he as an OC elevate TN above where they are?  Before going to GA he was at TN, AR, and Pitt.  Teams going anywhere from 3 to 8 wins. 

What's interesting is that the last 4 HCs he has worked for including Pruitt at TN have all been former DCs.  So you would think Chaney is basically the HC of the offense, yes each HC wants a certain brand or style but all probably fairly similar.

The talent level he'll be working will be a very noticeable drop.  Let's see what he can do and I'm sure the stats will be quite noticeable.   Don't be surprised if Pittman follows in less than 2 years...

Wasn’t he also the DC that Dabo fired and then hired Venables away from OU?

Well - I guess Georgia fans can delude themselves into putting all that on Chaney.

It's not like the Georgia defense didn't cave and allow Jalen Hurts to drive 80 yards and 52 yards in the 4th quarter. Or that the head coach didn't make a pretty boneheaded decision that did more to cost Georgia that game than anything Chaney did.

Clemson has had staff turnover and some of the hires were not big names except Venables. They fortunately have kept Venables a fairly long time for such a successful Coordinator.

Georgia needs a more dynamic offense to win the big games.  Those offensive statistics (435 yds/game) are meaningless because they simply out-talent most of their opposition but they come up short against teams with comparable talent.

Yes after they lost 70-33 to WV.  Venables was getting demoted by Stoops to make room for his brother.

I have frequently wondered why Pittman doesn't accept a HC position, and hire Chaney as his OC.  They do seem to follow each other (TN, AR, GA.......TN again?).

I can't see ANY college program hiring fat lazy Bert for any reason, regardless of who he would work with. As Pittman said more than once, he loved Fayetteville but could not stand Bert.

Coach B is living it up in New England with a fat wallet, good looking woman and a healthy child. On staff with the patriots. Sure he could care less about college athletics or Razorback athletics.

Was listening to the Vols sports radio yesterday, and the callers were all very positive about this and thought it was a solid hire. If he was rehired at Arkansas, there would be people on suicide watch. So either Vols fans don't know football as well as hogville, or Chaney isn't as bad of an OC as some of you think. I personally put a lot of the blame on everything wrong with Bert's tenure on Bert AND not his OCs
I used to get into it with certain Chaney haters on this board when he was at Arkansas. They thought he was a complete loser. I kept pointing out Chaney had a solid reputation within the college coaching profession. That wasn't my opinion. It came from people in the business and they know this stuff a lot better than I do. For this reason I was not surprised that Chaney ended up at Georgia and not surprised that he had success there.

It is not my understanding that he was told to find another job at Georgia. Rather that he's a play caller that does not like to be micro managed. Bert did not fire him at Arkansas. He just messed with him a lot including publicly on a few occasions. Pittman would have stayed at Arkansas but when Bert made negative comments about Chaney after he went to Pitt, Pittman was gone. It was just a matter of time.

I have no idea what Pittman will do now. I do know that he likes Georgia because of the access it gives him to outstanding O-linemen. As long as Kirby Smart doesn't run his mouth about Chaney I'm guessing Pittman will stay put.

I thought for the most part Chaney's offense at Arkansas was balanced and effective. It was good between the 20-yard lines.
My only complaint was the situational play-calling: short-yardage, goal line, etc. I thought we were not creative enough there.
I thought Enos improved that some.

Chaney is a damn good OC.
It'll be interesting to see if that Georgia offense averages 38 points per game and 7 yds. per play next year plus gets to the SEC championship game and is in contention for the playoffs.

Chaney only helped get that program to 2 SEC Championship games in 3 years - plus played for a National Championship.

Does no one remember how much better our offense looked the year AFTER Chaney was gone?

Now Pittman....that's another matter....the beginning of the end for CBB.

Maybe Pittman likes Chaney's offense - that he believes his offense best suits his Oline recruits.

Absolutely a rumor and one that makes no sense to me. But I've been around coaches long enough to know that things change with time. Maybe Bert called them and apologized. Maybe they simply agreed that under the right circumstances at the right school they might all get together again at some point in the future.

It really doesn't matter to me one way or the other. They're not coming back here so if Chaney sticks at Tennessee, Pittman says at Georgia and Bert never gets another college job, so what? I just passed along a rumor I heard from somebody who knows those guys.

Ever had a best friend? Nothing strange about it at all. Professionally they're on the same wave length. Pittman clearly likes having Chaney as his boss as opposed to some random coach that might not mesh with his O- line philosophy  .
